Thankfully when there were obviously no more questions and the teacher ('Mr K’) started the lesson. We went into little groups and had debates, each person playing a particular role about changes to the German education system. Next we had to discuss the differences in the education systems of Germany and Australia. At the end of the class we were asked to come back again on Thursday.
When they dropped us home, two local kids came and said hello and we started talking to them. We had talked to these girls the day we arrived; they had made fun of Felix’s German calling out “We speak good Germany too!” They were very friendly and after we stood talking in the driveway for about twenty minutes, we said we were going to the bakery to get lunch. They decided to come with us. So we had a nice walk to the bakery with these children. We bought some lunch and Felix asked then if they wanted anything, they were suddenly so shy! Many times Felix assured them they were welcome to choose something and finally they did. We walked back happily munching on pretzels, doughnuts and lollypops. It felt slightly odd buying lollies and doughnuts for strange children. They offered we could come back in summer and swim in their pool and I could go horse riding with them. Later that day they came back again and asked if they could play in the igloo.
After noon, we watched a very strange movie called “The Jacket” about going into the future and changing things, insanity, and death. I really liked it; it really played with my mind. You never really know what is real.
